Parker Enduro

The Parker Enduro will be held Oct. 26 at the BlueWater Resort & Casino. This is a four-hour race that’s intended as a test for drivers and their machines. 

The Bluewater Resort & Casino will play host to one of the greatest spectacles in boat racing- The Parker Enduro, starting at 11 a.m. on Oct. 26, 2019. The normally calm waters of Colorado River will test the mettle and will power of the racers and their equipment. Look to see some familiar faces and some brand new ones that are up to the challenge. The race will be 4 hours on an approximately 6 mile course, from the Bluewater Resort & Casino up 3 miles to Cienega Springs and back.  

Who will win their respective Divisions to claim the title of “King of the River”? The overall winner of the race will receive the “Marion Beaver Cup” dedicated to the memory of the founder of the event who passed in 2007. 

The event is a throwback to the heyday of powerboat racing's most prestigious endurance race - The Parker 9 Hour Enduro where inboard's vs. outboards, flats vs V bottoms, jets vs. I/O's race for 4 hours on the 6 mile course from The Blue Water Resort & Casino to Cienega Springs & back. Four hours is the ultimate test on water of man & machine vs the elements.

This race is open to all boating enthusiasts from the novice weekend warrior to the professional powerboat racer and everyone in-between.  The Race is modeled after the original 1963 “Parker Enduro” with all boats entering the contest to be a minimum length of 16 feet up to a maximum of 25 feet with any motor configuration (inboard, outboard, IO, Jet). Based on the boat and motor configuration, the team will designate a racing division (1 thru 7) per the official rules that govern the race (see the rules at

The breathtaking “Le Mans” start will open the event with all racing divisions taking off at once. Safety is of the utmost priority and there are strict rules regarding passing and overtaking boats. Fuel stops consist of a minimum of two (2) – eleven (11) minute stops on the trailer in the team’s pit designation so, like in NASCAR, fuel stops will play an important role.

Come and join in or watch this prestigious event and see with the many other racers, boat manufacturers and aftermarket manufacturers that have already signed up to race for bragging rights and their share of the prize money, and see who takes home the $79,500!
